Berber Museum, Marjourelle Gardens

Berber Museum, Marrakech Majourelle Gardens

The Berber people are the ethnicity indigenous to North Africa, known for their fine craftwork, delicious cuisine and traditional music. The newly refurbished Berber museum, situated within the Majourelle Garden, is a fantastic resource cataloguing Berber life from diverse regions of Morocco.

The exhibits document all aspects of Berber life, from craftwork to clothing and jewellery to carpets. All objects are beautifully displayed and perfectly lit; we especially enjoyed the Jewellery room with a ceiling that mimics the night sky.  Maps and explanatory texts are available in French, English and Arabic, and photographs, archive films and audio-visual documents are specifically curated for the visitors throughout their journey.

This small museum is a definite favourite of ours, a ‘must-see’ on any visit to Marrakech. The Berber Museum is located within the Majorelle Gardens in the Marrakech New town of Guiliez. Tickets for the museum can only be purchased alongside the entry fee to the gardens themselves, an attraction we also highly recommend.
